new hole in stainless steel sink

My better half wants a soap dispenser installed in our stainless sink.
I don't have any spare holes. What is the best way to cust a new hole, about 1 1/4"?

1-3/8" is the standard size.
See if you can find an electrician or rent a set of "Greenlees".

You can use a metal holesaw for this. carefully centerpuch the center so the drill doesn't wander off the proper measurement. I spray water on the saw to keep it cooler while drilling. Then touch up the sharp edges with some sandcloth. Good luck.

Just used a Uni-bit to drill a 5/8" hole for a filtered water faucet in my new SS sink. Good Uni-bit is about $40. I borrowed one.
